Yukoro Onsen is one of the two main onsens in the Hirafu village area. It is located in the lower Hirafu pension village. The highlight is the outdoor bath when it is snowing -perfect after a day skiing. The male and female outdoor onsens are separated. It is a small onsen and could get a bit crowded in peak season but is very atmospheric. It also seems a bit more authentic than the larger onsen on the mountain - you can smell the sulfur from the natural spring.
The cost was 600 Yen for the onsen - tip bring your own modesty towel (small towel for covering up or pay 200Y) and bath towel (can also be hired).
